The ability to sustain the fight

Life throws us a consistent barrage of faith shaking circumstances. To withstand these trials we must ensure that our faith remains steadfast in all things.

Remember, when rain drops fall they do not discriminate good ground from fallow. The seed of faith must be watered by the Word of God to produce strength and consistency.

How do you know when your faith is not up to par? Just read 1 Corinthians 13:2, it states: And if I have prophetic powers (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not love (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).

Love exemplifies the greatest aspect of the Spirit’s fruit. Love is the chief attribute-of our walk by faith, in fact, Galatians 5:22 begins this way; but the fruit of the Spirit is love, and 1 Corinthians 13: 8 starts with, Love never fails.

Be diligent that life has not saddled you with logical reasoning, resist the temptation to cataloguedthese experiences without applying long suffering,patience and hope. But most of all love that fuels your faith.
